The Millsaps College Department of Music offers a Chamber Music Camp through the Office of Continuing Education. For camp schedules, fees and registration, please contact the Office of Continuing Education at (601) 974-1130.
The Millsaps College Summer Chamber Music Camp is a weeklong camp for young artists, created to promote and encourage the development of string and piano Chamber music performance. Students who are rising 7th through 12th graders will have the opportunity to work with Millsaps faculty performing artists and members of the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra, in a supportive atmosphere of collaborative music-making. The daily schedule includes ensemble coaching, classes, rehearsals, master classes and evening performances by the artist faculty.
Chamber Music Coaching Sessions: Prior to camp, each student will be placed in two ensembles, according to his/her level of performance and study. Students will be sent their ensemble music for study and preparation with their private teachers. During the camp, the faculty will work on this special material with each ensemble and in master classes. Ensembles will also be given time to rehearse on their own and as a group during the week.
Admission Requirements: Student performers must have at least two years experience in private lessons, or instrumentalists must have at least three years experience in orchestra.
